About Me


Growth. I've spent too much of my life holding myself back. Now, I'm committed to living. :)


Aspiring film director. Feminist. Lover of awkward people and things.

I'm a passionate person who loves to experience different cultures and have new experiences. I feel like you can gain something from everything you do and everyone you meet. I'm very opinionated but equally, if not more, openminded. I love to laugh, talk, and have a good time! In learning about other people I find I learn about myself too. I love hearing other people's stories. It makes me fall more in love with life, and I try to do that everyday. I'd put Sarcasm as my second language, if that was an option...


"I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, or to remember the limitations of being human."

"Life shrinks or expands according to one's courage."

"To withhold from living is to die...the more you give of yourself to life the more life nourishes you."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I was an active CSer when I was living in Beijing, I'm eager to get involved again now that I'm back in NYC.


Pushing my own boundaries. I try to step outside of my comfort zone and try new things.
Whales (seriously)
LIFE! My interests are infinite.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Love all music genres, but R&B and Reggae are in constant circulation. But I'm constantly discovering new music

Movies: I do not get tired of watching movies. I don't discriminate by genre. I can really appreciate plotline. I feel like originality is dying in mainstream movies nowadays.

I love to read when I find the time. I most recently reread The Alchemist, and am now reading And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Housseini.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I applied to an art program in Rome, got accepted and raised money so that I could go. It was one of the first significant independent things I've ever done. And I've been building on that feeling more alive ever since!

Countries I’ve Visited

China, Italy, Jamaica, Thailand

Countries I’ve Lived In
